this is a fox news alert. the united states is closer to taking military action in syria. president obama says he hasn't made a decision yet, but that he is considering limited, narrow action in response to the chemical weapons attack. ed henry is at the white house monitoring the situation. ed joins us now. ed? >> reporter: andrea, good to see you. after days of laying low on syria, the president let his secretary of state, john kerry, take the lead on this issue twice this week. he came out a short time ago and spoke out, went after president assad in syria by basically saying this is a challenge to the world right now to step up and lead in the wake of this gas
2:01pm
attack that killed, according to the administration, over 1400 people, mostly women and children inside syria. but the president now finds himself in a very difficult position. this is a nobel peace prize winner, someone that ran for president in 2008 saying you have to go to the u.n., you have to get congressional authorization before you act militarily. now standing alone on the world stage, pushing basically for unilateral u.s. military action, the president seeing his reset with russia, now in tatters at the united nations, his ally not delivering on building a coalition yesterday. so the president stepped up today, started making his case. said he hadn't made a final decision, but started to make a case for u.s. military action and basically cast himself as a reluctant warrior. take a listen. >> this kind of attack is a challenge to the world.
2:02pm
we cannot accept a world where women and children and innocent civilians are gassed on a terrible scale. this kind of attack threatens our national security interests by violating well established international norms against the use of chemical weapons, by further threatening friends and allies of ours in the region like israel, turkey, and jordan, and increases the risk that chemical weapons will be used in the future and fall into the hands of terrorists that might use them against us. >> the president also said there's nobody who is more war we ary than him. remember, he called iraq a dumb war when he first came out against it running for president, ran in part on the fact he opposed the war in iraq. today he was trying to make it clear again and again, this is going to be unlike iraq, saying there would be no ground troops,
2:03pm
if he moves forward, no ground troops committed to syria, number one, number two, saying it would not be an open ended commitment. number three, his secretary of state, john kerry today, part of a release of a four page intelligence assessment by the administration why they believe assad was behind the gas attack on august 21st, and kerry explicitly said this is unlike iraq. we're sure the intelligence is right. the intelligence community in this case saying they have a high degree of confidence they can pin it on assad, andrea. >> the question i was going to ask is about that intelligence. how do they know? al qaeda has nuclear weapons or chemical weapons. we know they have used them before. how do they know it isn't al qaeda to lead the united states saying hey, fight the war against assad so we can rise to power. how sure are they, ed? >> reporter: they're insisting they're very sure, that label of high degree of confidence is the
2:04pm
highest level the intelligence community will put out there, so given the iraq experience for this administration to go on a limb like this, you would think th evidence. what they laid out was so-called signal intelligence, human intelligence. they have at least one intercept of a conversation that they believe shows that assad commanders were involved in the chemical attack. they believe that they've got the intelligence to back it up to say the regime was behind this, but you're absolutely correct that, you know, there was a report by the associated press just 24 hours ago saying there were mid level officials that looked at the intelligence, are not quite as convinced as people at the upper levels, and are worried some of the chemical weapons may not have always been in the hands of the regime, could have gotten in the hands of the rebels. given the iraq experience, the administration has to be very careful before the president gives the go signal.
2:05pm
>> ed, strikes me what you have here is a situation where the syrians are really a proxy for what's going on with iran and the western powers, especially israel in this matter, and yet the administration says their goal is not to knock out the assad regime, this is not about regime change. they want someone that the rebels can negotiate with. but how can you constrain the attack as to not just take this guy out? >> reporter: juan, a great point on a number of levels. number one, the administration's policy for two years has been that assad has to go. when jay carney came in the briefing room two, three days ago, told us in the press corp if we move forward with military action, let's be clear, it will not be regime change, that was quizzical looks. one hand, assad has to go. on the other hand, if we take military action, we're not pushing him out. today the president said we have to look out for the allies,
2:06pm
jordan and israel, that could be attacked as well as turkey. turkish prime minister erdogan a few moments ago put out a statement saying he is concerned that the policy should be regime change, and in fact, as one of our key allies, he thinks the goal of any military action should be taking assad out. here is one of our allies that president obama is citing in turkey, and they're saying the opposite of what he is whether or not regime change would be the goal. >> we're three years into civil war in syria, 100,000 believed to be dead. now all of a sudden, the administration believes the chemical weapons killed 1400 people and it is go time. what's the whisper when go time is in washington, d.c.? i am scratching my head trying to figure out what's the rush. we need to spend time finding out what's happening there first. >> reporter: the assumption is it would be at least until after saturday, that's when the u.n.
2:07pm
weapons inspectors are scheduled to leave, and certainly the u.s. government would not want to allow assad to use the weapons inspectors as human shields or have them in the way and potentially be harmed. so in terms of a timetable, you would expect it would be at least until after saturday. you raise a good point why is this all of a sudden raising the administration's consciousness. bottom line is 120,000 people at least according to the u.n. and others have been killed in syria the last couple years, as you say. so as awful as it is that apparently about 1400 people were killed by the gas attack, what about the 120,000 others? i asked the administration that question this week in the briefing room, why is this tipping the balance, and i think there's two reasons. one is that they can't pin the 120,000 deaths on assad, in this case with the chemical attack, they think the intelligence will show them, allow them to bring it to the international community and say look, they violated international norms here, we have to go in.
2:08pm
secondly, the one the administration doesn't want to admit, the president put out a red line, not about 120,000 killed by conventional means but one year ago this month at a news conference at the white house, the president set up a red line on the use of chemical weapons, so he has to back up that rhetoric. they don't want to acknowledge that, because then it looks like he is doing it symbolically and not really as a clear military mission. that's why i think there are a lot of lawmakers, not just republicans, but some democrats on the hill saying what's the real mission, are you going to decimate assad's military, make it different and help the rebels, or is this backing the president's red line rhetoric. >> ed, has the white house expressed any concern about retaliatory attack on israel, should we go into syria, have a military strike there, are they expressing concern about what iran might do in retaliation to us and attacking israel? >> reporter: they have. there's a number of ways to answer that. one is secretary of state kerry, you mention iran, juan did as
2:09pm
well, if the u.s. doesn't back up the rhetoric of a year ago about crossing a red line, that sends a signal to assad he can kill more people, sends a signal to iran and others that the u.s. word doesn't mean anything, and they may go on, do all kinds of other things, number one. number two, if we attack syria, yes, there's concern inside the administration, that's one of the calculations i'm told holding up the debate now is what happens then, does assad turn his fire on israel. but the fact of the matter is assad even if the u.s. does not attack syria, assad could go after israel with chemical weapons or other means, even if the u.s. doesn't get involved, so this is one of those -- there's basically a couple bad choices for the administration now. if you go in, maybe they'll go after our allies like israel, turkey, jordan. if you don't go in, let assad go on with impunity, he can do all
2:10pm
kinds of things. >> has president obama e-mailed assad the exact addresses of the targets yet? >> reporter: no, some of the leaks which is what you're probably getting at have been a little too detailed. >> right. >> reporter: there has to be frustration over the fact that assad, number one, had a lot of time to move assets and what not, the administration has been deliberating. maybe that's a good thing, maybe the administration shouldn't be rushing into anything, as i think was noted earlier by eric. on the other hand, this has given assad time to prepare for this. number two, there have been specific leaks in "the new york times" and elsewhere that suggested specific areas where we might bomb that just is completely absurd. the other thing when you mention whether he e-mailed or anything, you probably heard about one of assad's children allegedly going on facebook and daring president obama to attack. we see social media getting involved. >> i think obama defriended him
2:11pm
after that. >> probably said omg after that. >> ed henry at the white house, thank you so much, ed. sorry about your labor day weekend being ruined by that. great reporting. we'll follow you all week long. thank you. so president obama right now could be taking unilateral action as yesterday the british said they're not going to come with us if we go, the french are also considering it, but right now, it is just president obama, which is a very different tact than he took in 2012. flashback to what president obama said last year about going at it alone. >> with respect to syria, what's happening in syria is heartbreaking and outrageous, and what you have seen is the international community mobilize against the assad regime for us to take military action, unilaterally as someone suggested, or to think that somehow there's some simple solution i think is a mistake.
2:12pm
>> eric, isn't that about what he is going to do? >> i listened to john kerry's announcement, i listened to president obama also. i think i figured this out. this is about ego, this is about president obama's ego, he wants to save face, said i am drawing a red line a year ago, it has been crossed twice. he is more inclined to go now because it violated his red line, and it is also about him defending america and america's ego when he says we have to do this or north korea or iran see we're weak. we're going to have to go kill people in syria, we have to do it because we're america. i think it is a bad idea. >> we have to check the box. >> i agree it is a bad idea. i don't like it because i think the middle east is a mess, i don't think us getting in there is going to necessarily solve questions. when i heard today the president, i hear john kerry say this is about iran, that's why i said to ed henry, it is a proxy
2:13pm
war with iran. you have to be clear with iran, don't get the wrong message here, buddy. don't think you can get away with using chemical weapons or nukes without immediate and strong response from the united states. i think okay, if that's what you're doing, get more buy in from me. i don't get the buy in for getting involved in the syrian mess. >> greg, syrians have been gassed, we didn't see that reaction when four americans died in benghazi. >> it is strange. how much does this matter to the united states? since syria happened, what have we not been talking about? it was just last week and it rhymes with the word egypt. egypt vanished like a matt damon movie. we don't talk about it. the middle east is essentially a lazy susan. you spin it, there's always a new strife or crisis to find. when that one goes away, another one. i want to bring up another
2:14pm
thing. i have to congratulate president obama. he invented a new strategy, the opposite of the element of surprise, it is called the element of here it comes. tell them when the attack will happen, they move their stuff into a basement, you go oh, never mind, then assad probably left syria, in the east village probably getting pizza. prime minister cameron, this is the first time the prime minister lost a war vote in the house of commons since 1782. i know that because harry reid blamed it on the tea party. >> general valali returned from syria, he said he believes assad left the country. say we go in for a couple of days, send missiles in, check the box, save face. president obama can look tough. who will replace him if we do take him out, or say we don't, isn't that a bit embarrassing for the united states? >> it is. we talked about this yesterday, talked about how there's no plan b. we have seen the consequences that come when you don't have
2:15pm
plan b, seen it in egypt, libya, all over the place. it was interesting today, you had john kerry, secretary of state now, saying assad is a thug and murderer. two years ago, you had former secretary of state hillary clinton saying assad was a reformer. you also i thought -- where was president obama today? why was the first major address to the country about syria coming from the secretary of state? i mean, john kerry's speech was pretty powerful, whether you agreed with it or not, it was powerful, he was alone at the podium, talked directly to the american people, while president obama gives a four minute talk surrounded by other people, and distracted, which he wouldn't let the press cover live, and says a couple things with this kind of lazy attitude of well, we just have to do something. why does the secretary of state look like president kerry while president obama is waiting to tell us what's going on. >> obama was leading from behind kerry. >> exactly. >> let me tell you, you got to stop hating on obama in this situation. there's a huge difference
2:16pm
between what's going on in syria now with the use of chemical weapons and what was going on a year or two years ago. >> hold on. that's very different. juan, we saw video of saddam hussein gassing a village. democrats sat around, said -- >> you're trying to get payback for what happened with the destruction in iraq -- >> i don't think we should invade. here is what i am saying. this president let the muslim brotherhood rise in egypt, let al qaeda rise up in libya. what happens, who is going to replace assad? there's no game plan, no follow-up plan. he hasn't made the case to the country or to congress. what are we doing? >> of course we have a plan. but the thing is you sit here and everybody is acting like they know exactly what to do. they're going to blame obama if he goes in or doesn't. ahead on "the five," facebook friday. go to facebook.com/thefive.

2:22pm
august 28th, 1955, that this kid visiting mississippi from chicago was said to have wolf whistled at a 21-year-old white woman, carolyn bryant, then goes back to a shack where he is staying with a distant uncle, great uncle, and three or four days later the woman's husband comes in the night with his stepbrother, drags him out of bed. they spend the entire night beating emmitt till to a pulp, to a pulp, then they take him out, shoot him in the head, then take his bullet ridden beaten body, wrap a cotton gin, throw it in the talahatchie river. how is that the equal of what happened between george zimmerman and trayvon martin? i don't know. but people think somehow with their grievance agenda it is. it lessens the credibility of today's civil rights movement.
2:23pm
greg? >> you know what, i didn't need a civil rights movement, i'm just a white guy. maybe there will be one for short white people that smoke, i don't know. it is hard for me to say. i do believe there's kind of a battle for survival in this movement and a movement should police itself. how did sharpton get up there, if he is a leader, i am a labradoodle. there's a corruption of exclusion. hate conservatives all you want, their ideas seem to work. >> i agree. i feel there's been one side of the story. this week a lot of back and forth about who was invited, who wasn't invited. on a lot of different issues in the civil rights movement, voter id is one example. we aren't hearing a lot from conservatives, african americans that support voter id. as you said, to compare emmitt till to trayvon martin, it makes me -- it is disgusting, makes me very sad, to distort history

2:25pm
provocative things, put race in it, people start to listen. people feel they have been wronged and gravitate to that. my problem, there's perfect opportunity for president obama and black leaders to say we had struggles in the past, but going forward we have to fix the problems, the problems of the breakup of the family unit, fathers that are leaving, mothers bearing children, 72% are unwed, those are the types of things they need to be addressing, not it is still bad because trayvon martin is proof. >> i think race is still an issue in american society, extremely race conscious society, but i worry that they're wasting their credibility when they don't tell people the exact truth, don't understand that emmitt till is not the equivalent of trayvon martin. >> president obama is not going to point to the real problems because he pledged to fix them, black unemployment, not enough blacks graduating four year
